If you’re a micro-business (small business, sole trader or not-for-profit organisation with aggregated annual turnover between $30,000 and $75,000) impacted by the recent COVID-19 restrictions, you may be eligible to apply for a fortnightly payment of $1,500.
The 2021 COVID-19 micro-business grant provides cash flow support for micro-businesses in New South Wales who have had their work impacted by the restrictions while continuing to incur business costs.
Eligible businesses will need to nominate the 2-week period in which they first experienced the required decline in turnover.
Eligible applicants can use the grant for business costs incurred due to the impacts of the public health order in NSW and for which no other government support is available, including:
– Salaries and wages.
– Utilities and rent.
– Financial, legal or other advice.
– Marketing and communications.
– Perishable goods.
– Other business costs.
A qualified accountant, registered tax agent or registered BAS agent may apply for the grant on behalf of your business.
Your accountant will need to provide a letter of authority from you to show that they are authorised to act on behalf of your business if they are not listed as an associate on the Australian Business Register.
Applications will close after 11:59pm on 18 October 2021.
